Historical background


BOURBONNAIS - PRIORY OF SOUVIGNY SIRES AND BOURBON - Archambault VII

(1243-1249)

In 916, the Sire de Bourbon was the donation of Souvigny at the Abbey of Cluny who assumed the right to coin money, right she did not, and did confirm in 1058 by Pope Stephen IX ( 1057-1058). Coinage began in 1080 and is mentioned in the records from 1095. The coinage is divided into eight periods: 1) 1080-1213, anonymous coinage 2) 1213-1216, mint between Guy of Dampierre and the prior Hugues 3) 1216-1243, mint priors only 4) from 1243 to 1249, Bourbon and mint associated Souvigny; 5) 1249-1262, back to mint Souvigny alone 6) 1262-1268, mint Souvigny, John of Burgundy and Agnes; 7) 1268-1272, mint Souvigny alone 8) since 1272, new pariage between Souvigny and lords of Bourbon. Souvigny is still reported in the order of 1315. Philip V Long bought the currency to his cousin Louis of Clermont in 1321.
